We’ve been working in all directions this summer! But I think that’s what summer is all about. Seems like it isn’t as long as it used to be when I was a kid. You always hear time goes faster as you get older. My UFO pile is a testament to that!
Since summer has been flying by, I have been remiss in sharing some great stuff with you, like

We also just wrapped up the “World’s Longest Yard Sale” week. We met great quilters & shoppers. We hope all who participated had a great time. We picked up a few little decorative items for the shop.
A nice big bassinet style basket
2 cute vintage aprons that needed just a nice soak & wash
and a cute new washboard. (that’ll help remind you how good life really is-could you imagine this as part of your daily life! Bless those who have come before us & made our lives easier!)
Last & by NO MEANS least, I am tickled to report that my yo-yo project is about to enter another phase! I should wrap up the applique on the LAST strip tonight. That means construction of the strips can finally begin soon!
I am already pondering my next handwork project. I really want to play with hexies, but I think I will try to finish my hand quilting in-progress quilt first. It’s been waiting to be a finished quilt for too many years. Here’s the post about it from 11/2010 (eek!). Oh, and there is also hand piecing to do. I have been collecting vintage blocks & piecing those when I can.

If you’ve read all the way to the end of this long post, you deserve a treat! We will announce in the next couple weeks (in grand fashion) that we are branching into a new textile. I am sure that will soon be reclassified to “a new textile obsession” by Mr. FNQ.
We have begun to add our inventory to the web store & some of you have already found it! but what is IT?
We have some kits, patterns & precuts already listed, so go take a look. More yardage & precuts are soon to follow, as well as rug hooking, needle felting, and applique supplies. We are over the moon giddy about this new adventure & hope you’ll share in our excitement!
